    I would speculate that if anyone were crazy enough to actually measure it, they would find a statistically significant difference in the mental functioning of different racial groups, with Jews and Asians being smarter than everyone else, and blacks and native americans being on the shallow end, whites somewhere in the middle.

    I'm also of the opinion, though, that it would do society no good at all to even begin to look in to these things, and so we shouldn't encourage that kind of research.
    Ugh. I know I'm going to regret bringing this up, but it is worth mentioning that white slave owners in the US did make a habit of selectively "breeding" African-American slaves to bring out certain genetic traits, just as they would any other domesticated animal.

    Of the traits they selected for in doing so, intelligence generally was not an especially high priority on the list.

    I certainly hope this hasn't been a long term factor, and whether African-Americans were even consistently subjected to this treatment for anywhere near long enough a period of time to make any substantial difference with regards to population wide intelligence levels is ultimately a question I couldn't even begin to answer in the first place. However, it does raise some interesting implications nevertheless.

    Just sayin'.

    I, on the other hand, am so awesome that I could care less about social taboos. So I will just give it to you straight.

    I'm white. I have dated many asian women. In fact, my last girlfriend was asian. The first girl I ever kissed was black. So basically, when it comes to me, I find people of all colors to be attractive.

    When it comes to white women, however, I don't like seeing them with men of other races. Not 100 percent sure the reason, as it's mainly a gut reaction. Maybe I'm a racist subconsciously, who knows.

    I believe, though, the reasons are because I want all women to be attracted to guys who resemble me. Since I'm not black or asian, those guys don't resemble me, therefore I have no interest in seeing them succeed sexually.

    When I see a white woman with a black man, my first thought is that there must be something wrong with her.

    It's more of an envy thing and an ego thing than a racial thing, at the end of the day.

    Also, most guys feel the same way I do. I happen to know that from talking to a lot of people in the real world on a daily basis. They will, however, lie to you about it.
    now thats funny

    even though they lie, YOU know its "most" guys because for some reason they tell you but not others?

    thats the second most dumb thing i read today, and so is your logic behind your reasoning because it makes no sense

    "resemble" in relationship to just white/race is beyond stupid. Theres no logic in that at all.

    Should those white girls think theres somethign wrong with you when they see you with a asian?
    what if you are 5'8", over weight with blonde hair and she is with a 6ft in shape guy with black hair he most certainly wouldnt "resemble" you lol

    now im not claiming to know why you feel the way you do, but "resemblance" makes no sense whatsoever even with the reasoning you provided

    African-Americans have benefited from admixture with whites. Their mean intelligence measures higher than non-admixed Africans from all the different cultures in Africa.

    So, does this mean (to you) that whites should not procreate with blacks?

    Do you have a source for that?

    I didn't say that at all, I was simply correcting Gathomas88's statement. How on Earth did you leap to that question? I didn't mention procreation at all.

    It was something I was curious about.

    The American Psychological Association devoted an entire journal to this issue back in 2005. Here you go.

    It's a self-correcting process, so the consequences don't really matter. The restriction on liberty is too great and not worth the benefit.
